The Italian company was established in 2002. Since the beginning of its activity, the company produces a great variety of traditional pasta shapes: "Cavatelli", "Strozzapreti", "Orecchiette", "Trofie", "Paccheri". These different shapes of pasta are products originating from different regions: for example, “paccheri” from Campania, “orecchiette” from Puglia… The products that distinguish the company's offer, however, are the shapes of Calabrian pasta: “maccheroni”, “maccherroncini” and “Calabrian cavatelli”. The production process joins technology and family traditions. In particular, in order to realize particular phases, the production process, unlike the ancient traditional manual method, foresees the use of particular machinery. However, the final product has the same characteristics of the traditional one. The company follows the entire process from the processing of raw materials to the packaging in standard packs of 500 grams. The production process is made up by several stages. The company uses durum wheat semolina and craftsmanship which allow to achieve the best qualitative results in the production of pasta. The production is carried out according to the HACCP regulations. The production is performed in four phases: the dough is made with water coming from the sources of nearby mountains and with prime quality durum wheat semolina. In the second phase, using small machinery, it is possible to obtain special shapes of pasta. The third phase is the one of the pasteurization and finally the fourth phase there is the desiccation in order to obtain a genuine product, prime quality and without changing the nutritional characteristics. The company mainly sells its products in Italy but it has small market shares in several countries: Germany, England, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland and the United States. The company wishes to expand its market share abroad and in order to achieve this target it seeks distributors and commercial agents specialized in the sale of gastronomic specialties.
